  • You might not feel ready. You might not feel capable. You might think you aren’t worthy. But, the beautiful thing about God is that he can do the heavy lifting. We just have to be willing to take the first step. What are some of your talents or gifts that you feel called to use? Where are you called to make a difference?

  • What do you do when life throws you an unexpected curve ball? How do you process? The other day my husband and I brought our car in to get the AC recharged because it has a leak. It is an older car but we didn’t really expect it to be a tremendous expense. Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out exactly as we had hoped and we were suddenly faced with some major repairs. It’s never a good thing when your mechanic says that word transmission, right? The total bill they quoted was over $5,000. I’m pretty sure at this point in the car’s life it is not even worth that much. Major decision-making time.

  • The arrival of summer for many can mean a time of vacations and out-of-town visitors. Relatives may come stay for a few days or old friends might be in town.

  • Make The Call

    “I need to call my friend and have lunch, it’s been way too long!” I think this and then forget. Does this ever happen to you? I regret this happening to me all too much in the past 7 years. Since I got married and had kids life is like one big tornado! My excuses are that I’m just too tired tonight, or I can’t because this week is crazy, my kids have too many activities, or my husband works a lot and I feel guilty taking the time, plus I just can’t spend the money. Any of these sound familiar? The thing is what if that person is no longer there to call? Read More
